The 7-person cottage where we stayed at was cozy and comfortable, consisting of a living room, toilet, bath with hot and cold shower, and 3 rooms. Linens and towels were provided. No Wifi signal available in the cottage. Rates may be a bit higher compared to other lodging places in Sagada but I think they are reasonable given the location... More

St. Joseph’s Resthouse in Sagada was well located at the head of a beautiful valley. The guesthouse, which used to be a nunnery, had a pretty garden and a superb view of the valley. The staff was efficient and friendly. Internet was free, and breakfast (taken down the street about one block) was simple, but adequate, and was included in... More

The St. Andrew room offers a great view of Sagada but it's attached to the shared balcony where fellow visitor come to smoke. The cigarette smell can drift into the room through the window. The walls are not soundproof and chatter can be heard from other rooms. The room is simple and clean. Water Heater works in the bathroom. The... More

We stayed here for only one night, after having moved from a noisy location. The attentive, helpful staff, the nice room & the perfect location all made us wish we had come here first. The location, perched above the town, was scenic & quiet, & convenient for doing tours of the area.

The rest house is very comfortable and clean. It is in the middle of the town so everything is accessible. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I would have given it a 5 star, but the restaurant messed it up. We had to wait for our orders for more than an hour and the food was not good at... More

The place was cute. The staff were friendly and accomodating. The restaurant food is nice. However, I still have a couple of concerns. Our room had huge black ants everywhere, and it freaked the hell out of me. They were crawling on our bedsheets, our towels, you name it. The bathrooms are slightly dirty for my taste (but what do...

The staff here are friendly and helpful. Our original booking was at mas fere, they overbooked us but the staff worked together to transfer our deposit and booking. Rooms are comfortable but very basic, I would suggest that they are a little pricey for what you get, expecially when compared to neighbouring rest houses. Perhaps the owners might consider upgrading... More

St. Joseph is a simple and humble place which offers the very basic and comforts we are used to if we are from a big city. We stayed in a cottage. Not the original room we have requested and agreed upon. It has hot shower. A small pantry area. No wi-fi in the rooms/cottages. Only in the main lobby and... More

We stayed in Sagada for four nights during the Etag in the last week of January. We had great views of the town, the basketball matches and the city square for the talent and Miss Sagada competitions, but it is a quiet location on the hillside. There are plenty of steps up and down to the road, but the lights... More
